A comprehensive status report providing an overview of an ongoing project in Springfield, Massachusetts, focused on invasive plant control in public landscapes was recently released by ReGreen Springfield. The project aims to reduce the population of invasive plants in the city by 15% over a five-year period. The primary objective of the current phase of the program is to address the invasive Japanese knotweed. The project is funded by a grant from the Springfield Community Preservation Act Committee and is being implemented by ReGreen Springfield in collaboration with the Springfield Parks Department and the Springfield Conservation Commission.
